Finished - The Quilters Planner 2018 Sampler Quilt

Those of you who have followed me for a while know that I am a big fan of a good sampler quilt!  I get bored pretty quickly with making the same block over and over again.  With the challenge of making quilts for a twin bedroom, I selected two patterns that I thought would work well together.  The first twin quilt I posted here.

Today's finish is the sampler quilt from the 2018 Quilters Planner and I could not love it more!! It has the same Kona Aloe and Kona White background fabric as its fraternal twin quilt.  It was great fun picking the fabric for each block, including a little fussy cutting interest.

Making two quilts at a time, I thought I would go easy on the quilting.  But apparently I just can't stop myself from quilting every inch!  Each block is uniquely quilted and I used the same swirly motif in the border areas as in in the first quilt.

I love the texture on both the front and back from all this quilting.

As the bedroom is in the lower level with a deck overhang above, even on the brightest days it is still pretty dark in this room.  I think these quilts go a long way to adding some cheer to the room!

I blogged about the pillows on the bed here. And, yes, I made the window treatments and the window seat cushion for the room as well.
Most of the time these quilts will be folded at the end of the beds with white comforters but I think they work fine together!

It feels great to finally have handmade quilts on these beds.  I have many quilts in process in the sewing cave so stay tuned for (hopefully) a few more finishes soon!

Have a great day!
